Nearing their fiftieth-year since their formation, the six-man collective known as the Average White Band is still curating original music and performing live for their many generations of fans. The group founded in Dundee, Scotland was influenced by R&B and soul legends like Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, and James Brown. And later became an essential part of hip-hop musicianship as the group was sampled by legendary hip-hop artists like Ice Cube, Too $hort, Nas, and A Tribe Called Quest making them the 15th most sampled music act in history.
The Average White Band is known for their work in the realms of instrumental R&B, funk, soul, and disco with hits like "School Boy Crush," "A Love All Your Own," and most notably their 1974 single "Pick Up The Pieces." Throughout their elongated music career, the Average White Band has released a total of 13 studio albums with 2018's Inside Out being their latest offering. The group has also released seven live-recorded albums and 34 singles, over half of which have charted internationally.
Now, with the group still intact, the Average White Band will be headlining a one-time performance in Bakersfield, California at the Spectrum Amphitheatre come April 18. Tickets for the one-off live production can be purchased, here.
